Could you refer to rapper A$AP Ferg as a sneakerhead? He thinks you could. Here’s why:
“You could describe me as a sneakerhead. [One time], I waited in a sneaker line for two days, but I was so embarrassed by investing that amount of time and money into something like that,” he told Footwear News.
“Now I don’t actually search for sneakers, but I’ll purchase them whenever I come across a hot pair. My dad used to buy me all the sneakers, so I kind of was raised into the hobby. I love the smell of a brand-new pair of kicks. I love inventive silhouettes, colorways and materials — they elevate my personal style and keep me close to street trends. A good sneaker closet is priceless. During the Cam’ron era in the ’90s, I was heavily influenced by the color pink and what his movement did for streetwear. I was obsessed with a few classic styles in pink at that point.”
But what styles is he favoring currently?
“The Adidas Originals Superstar shell-toes, Stan Smiths and Raf Simons have been dominating my collection lately, but I still have a few pairs of Jordans.”
Most recently, the Adidas-sponsored star showed his support for Pusha T, attending his launch for the ‘King Push EQT’ sneaker.
